OpenText Documentum Content Server - Arbitrary File Download

EDB-ID: 43005
Author: Andrey B. Panfilov
Published: 2017-10-17
CVE: CVE-2017-15014
Type: Webapps
Platform: Multiple
Vulnerable App: N/A

# Opentext Documentum Content Server (formerly known as EMC Documentum Content Server)
# contains following design gap, which allows authenticated user to download arbitrary
# content files regardless attacker's repository permissions:
# when authenticated user upload content to repository he performs following steps:
# - calls START_PUSH RPC-command
# - uploads file to content server
# - calls END_PUSH_V2 RPC-command, here Content Server returns DATA_TICKET,
# purposed to identify the location of the uploaded file on Content Server filesystem
# - further user creates dmr_content object in repository, which has value of data_ticket equal
# to the value of DATA_TICKET returned at the end of END_PUSH_V2 call
# As the result of such design any authenticated user may create his own dmr_content object,
# pointing to already existing content of Content Server filesystem
# The PoC below demonstrates this vulnerability:
# MacBook-Pro:~ $ python
# usage:
# host port user password
# MacBook-Pro:~ $ python docu72dev01 10001 dm_bof_registry dm_bof_registry
# Trying to connect to docu72dev01:10001 as dm_bof_registry ...
# Connected to docu72dev01:10001, docbase: DCTM_DEV, version: 7.2.0270.0377 Linux64.Oracle
